    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Essene Lodge, the location to Mystery Creek was excellent. The Lodge itself exceeded our expectations of a holiday bach. There was everything you needed for a family and more. It was very clean, spacious and well thought out. The spa was divine! Will definitely be back.

    A stylish house - warm, comfortable and high standard of furniture and fittings. Peaceful countryside location and the kids loved visiting the horses at the fence. A great stay and would love to come back sometime.
